Toronto ROM M. Lee Crystal, by D. Libeskind (2008)

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Royal Ontario Museum. Half of Toronto hate this addition, half of the city likes it. I am it the camp who hates it. Not because it is a modern building, but because it was added to an old building and destroyed its character. It is now neither here nor there. Also it is a museum, and with the glass wall it removed so much display possibilities, that a good portion of exhibits is in a storage. Daniel Libeskind is not the most practical of architects. It was voted 8th ugliest building in the 2010.

On the plus side it offers great photo opportunities.

Thank you for yor ysl and comment.

L+F for this photo because it is an interesting photo. We have something similar in Ljubljana Sports hall Stozice but it is a new building out of town so we do not bother that much.

Best regards

This one is right in the center of the city.

I would not mind if it was build as new, but not an addition to classic structure.
